Lighting the Flame of Compassion

(Häftad)

Beskrivning:

Inspiring passages from the great Sanskrit texts, each illustrated with an original watercolour. "Lighting the Flame of Compassion" is a selection of some of the finest and most revered passages from the treasure house of Sanskrit scriptures. Touching on ecological themes, mystical states of mind and the notion of a profound underlying order in the universe, this collection is a sampling of the wisdom of the spiritual heritage of humanity. In verses from the Katha Upanishad, Death himself imparts secret teachings to a young seeker boldly knocking at his door. The enduring wisdom of the Rig Veda, revealed to seers absorbed in the highest states of consciousness, extols us to honour the all-pervading divine life force. The practical wisdom from the much-loved Bhagavad Gita illuminates the nature of the human condition; and from the Upanishads come simple, elegant prayers humbly asking for guidance and peace. Translated from Sanskrit by noted spiritual teacher, yogi and Sanskrit scholar, Pandit Rajami Tigunait, these fresh and graceful renderings touch the heart as well as the mind. Each selection includes the original Sanskrit in Devanagari script, a transliteration of Sanskrit and an original translation in English. Original watercolours illustrate each selection and invite the reader to contemplate and enjoy the love, compassion and wisdom flowing through these passages from the hearts of those who embody the highest goal of life.
